If You Are The Son Of God

Young Yi

Luke 3:21-22

Jesus is not only the Son of God, but the Lord over all Creation. Do you believe that truth? Young Yi shares that while knowing who Jesus is is important, that knowledge isn’t the end of it. We must know why we believe in Him. In faith, we place our hope in Jesus because of the sacrifice He made on the cross, conquering sin, satan, and death. It is in believing this truth that we can be a part of the family of God through Jesus.

I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord.
He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again.
He ascended into heaven,
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic Church,
the communion of the saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.


When all the people were baptized, Jesus also was baptized. As he was praying, heaven opened, and the Holy Spirit descended on him in a physical appearance like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: “You are my beloved Son; with you I am well-pleased.”

Luke 3:21-22

Modern secular people would say that the thing we need to be saved from is the idea we need to be saved. The thing we need redemption from is the idea that we need redemption and the only sin is to tell people that they sin. Which means the only way to be free is to actually liberate yourself from Christianity. Which means our modern secular culture is not just post-Christian, in some ways it’s actually very Christian because it has all the Christian values, but it wants them without
God. – Tim Keller

Luke 3:38

Then Jesus left the Jordan, full of the Holy Spirit, and was led by the Spirit in the wilderness for forty days to be tempted by the devil. He ate nothing during those days, and when they were over, he was hungry. The devil said to him, “If you are the Son of God, tell this stone to become bread.” But Jesus answered him, “It is written: Man must not live on bread alone. ” So he took him up and showed him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. The devil said to him, “I will give you their splendor and all this authority, because it has been given over to me, and I can give it to anyone I want. If you, then, will worship me, all will be yours.” And Jesus answered him, “It is written: Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only. ” So he took him to Jerusalem, had him stand on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down from here. For it is written: He will give his angels orders concerning you, to protect you, and they will support you with their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. ” And Jesus answered him, “It is said: Do not test the Lord your God. ” After the devil had finished every temptation, he departed from him for a time.

Luke 4:1-13

Wilderness = ἔρημος/”erēmos (desert, remote, solitary, a forsaken and desolate place)

For God loved the world in this way: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Anyone who believes in him is not condemned, but anyone who does not believe is already condemned, because he has not believed in the name of the one and only Son of God.

John 3:16-18
